VGM Calls for Heartland Conference 2022 Speakers

Published in Complex Rehab on October 25, 2021

Heartland Conference LogoVGM is now accepting proposals from prospective speakers for its annual Heartland Conference. 

With a number of education tracks to fill, conference organizers are looking for presenters to offer their expertise on a variety of topics including respiratory, business leadership and people strategies, rehab, billing and reimbursement, business operations, retail, sales and marketing, home accessibility, and audits.

“We are so excited to announce our call for speakers for the 2022 Heartland Conference,” said Heartland education chair Kayla Mahler. “Each year, our goal is to offer better education than the year before and fill our education tracks with a robust lineup of sessions. We are looking for thought leaders and industry experts to share their knowledge and experiences to both educate and inspire the hundreds of attendees.”  

The 2022 conference takes place June 13-15 in Waterloo, Iowa, corporate headquarters of VGM Group, Inc. Attendees include HME and home care industry experts, as well as health care professionals working in a wide variety of roles and with all levels of experience. Presenters come from all over the country and, like many of the conference attendees, they often return for the unique opportunity to connect with peers and manufacturers and experience hospitality from VGM’s employees.  

VGM’s conference not only provides presenters the opportunity to share their expertise but also to attend networking and social events, making it an effective way to increase visibility.

“There’s no shortage of opportunity for presenters at the Heartland Conference,” said Mahler. “It’s the perfect place to bring visibility and quality leads to your business. But, more than that, Heartland is all about the VGM community — it’s the sharing of ideas and inspiration that lets you make a real impact on the industry.”

Speaker proposals for Heartland Conference are due by Dec. 17. Those interested should visit www.vgmheartland.com/speak to complete the online form, or contact Kayla Mahler at [email protected], or call 319-274-6515.
